Mayhem in Flanders

You need to be brave to look at the first overhead shot, the movement in the peloton is scary. For me McEwan caused the crash by pushing between Greg Van Avermaet and the Cervelo guy.

Cav too big for oldest race in Flanders?

It is hard to understand why Cav would choose not to ride the Scheldeprijs and turn up the chance of an amazing treble. The organisers have prepared a great poster highlighting that both Boonen and Cav are on two wins and this year was to be the decider. Apparently Columbia have decided to send their reserve team that doesn’t include Cavendish. This race was in 2007 Cav’s breakthrough win and 2008 when he sneaked under Tommeke’s left arm confirmed that he is the best sprinter of his generation. Let’s hope there is a change of heart before Wednesday.
